Hmmm...

I mentioned the Ferrari in the beginning of this thread...

Just convinced my mom to throw down some more money...

HERE is the link to it again...

Is it worth it to get that? Or get the one you are recommending?

haha... 1500 ish...

The best deal on a latptop for 1500...

Possibly a 17" as well... Bigger is better

Would want a dvd burner in it... and like a 100 gb HD... And I want it able to play like BF2...

options?

EDIT: I have been looking around, and some laptops come with TV tuners? And remote controls?... Can you actually plug these in to a TV cable connection and run TV through it?

still ,for that budget these 2 i alredy mentioned are the best for gaming

you want too much , with that budget for a gaming laptop youll have to settle for 80gb and a 15.4" and no tv tuner, unless you wanna extend that budget to 1600 and take the 2nd.. then youll have a 17"

edit if you gotta have a tv tuner then take #1 and add the Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-USB2 MCE-Kit - External USB TV-Tuner & Remote , 1570$ total , but #2 still have a better video card..
